The 2014 CBC Massey Lectures Tour: Lecture 2—The Glory that was Greece

When: Tue., Oct. 14, 7 p.m. 2014

Adrienne Clarkson, Canada’s 26th Governor General and co-founder of the Institute for Canadian Citizenship argues that a sense of belonging is a necessary mediation between an individual and a society. She masterfully chronicles the evolution of citizenship throughout the ages: from the genesis of the idea of the citizen in ancient Greece, to the medieval structures of guilds and class; from the revolutionary period which gave birth to the modern nation-state, to present-day citizenship based on shared values, consensus and pluralism. Clarkson places particular emphasis on the Canadian model, which promotes immigration, parliamentary democracy, and the rule of law, and the First Nations circle, which embodies notions of expansion and equality.
